Before repairing car seat leather

Always start car leather restoration by cleaning. This step removes dirt from the surface to be repaired.

We recommend using a car leather cleaning product in foam form. For example, Bōme cleaning and descaling foam. This foam quickly dissolves dirt and leaves a clean leather. There's no need to rinse, just wipe off the excess with a microfibre towel.

The surface to be repaired is clean and bare. The leather seat is ready to receive the care needed for a successful leather restoration.

Repairing leather on car seats

Repairing leather is a more complex task. It is carried out in several stages, using different techniques depending on the professional.
If your leather is torn or has deep scratches, we recommend using a patching product. This is often in the form of a colourless paste. It slips into the scratches to level the leather. Repair products can be used to repair an open tear or close a clean cut in the leather.

They limit the degradation of the leather by quickly repairing the tear.

Here are the main steps
1. Mix the paste and the renovating milk of your choice.
2. On clean leather, apply the paste and milk mixture to fill in the scratches.
3. Leave to dry until the paste hardens.
4. Apply a coat of renovation milk over the whole area to harmonise the final look.

This repair can be carried out by a professional, depending on the condition of the torn leather.

We recommend applying a Bōme protective gel to ensure durability and preserve the new appearance of your leather seats.

In the event of major damage, we recommend that you contact a garage that can take care of your car seats. These professionals will be able to draw up an estimate and take care of the leather repairs.

To restore the colour of your car seats

Get your car's leather interior back to like-new condition by carrying out leather restoration. This is the car leather renovation stage which allows you to recover the original colour.

To do this, you need to apply Bōme renovation milk to clean leather seats. The renovation milk contains pigments and oil to nourish the leather. The pigments are absorbed by the car seat leather.

Using the renovation milk on car leather does not leave a greasy or sticky finish. Combined with the protective gel, you won't get any colour transfer.

Simply apply with a chamois cloth, making small circles on the leather. We don't recommend using a sponge, which will absorb the product rather than spreading it over the car leather. We advise you to make a single pass over the area to avoid saturating the leather.

Once the leather has been treated, the colour will be harmonious throughout the car upholstery.
